It is a blast. Except for shooting the Belding ground squirrels in Oregon and Nevada, I don't know of any shooting that is this fast and furious. I was hoping for some doubles, but the furballs didn't cooperate. I had a few chances, but by the time I got the camera turned on, zoomed, put into record, and got a lasered range, they invariably had moved. You're right, there is more than enough power out to about 80 yards, to take doubles. Oh well, maybe next time. It's an entirely different experience from hunting them with powder burners. The sound of the gun firing, and the pellet impacting, didn't seem to bother them much at all.Nice shot on the coon.
Great shooting Cliff. That sure looks like a fun time with that many targets. You sure can't shoot them with a powder burner and have it partner just stand there and not flinch. Did you manage any doubles during your trip? I would think with the power of the FX2000 you could easily pull off a double.My biggest target to date was a raccoon at 51 yards. It dropped like a sack of potatoes.

You sound like an F-16 pilot. Lots of things to do before pulling the trigger. I guess the friend or foe identification is easier though.

Glad you liked it. I think they're fun to watch and really fun to make.
Very fun to watch, I enjoyed that video.

Thanks, these modern adult "BB" guns are a blast. Hunting with these things is too much fun, and very challenging.

Does liquid vanilla work for removing skunk scent? It seems to work for a lot of the other odors.
Got another skunk last night and unfortunately he got me back.

Thanks. Years ago I would take skunks out of the rice fields, now and then I'd get caught downwind. The vanilla works great for fish, but I've never tried it for skunk.
The very best skunk smell remover is Alkaline hydrogen peroxide consisting of 1 quart 3 percent hydrogen peroxide (from a drugstore), 1/4 cup baking soda (sodium bicarbonate), and 1 teaspoon liquid soap. This is effective for washing people, animals and places or things they've sprayed.

But I have a real old electric hair clipper that says wash in gasoline while running too!
Wash hands in kerosene first, then in gasoline. Then wash off good in warm soft water, and some good soap. Wash clothes in gasoline and hang up in the open air until dry, after which they should be washed in water with soap, to remove the gasoline smell. Pelts should be put in a pail of gasoline and shook around for a short time and hung up in the air until dry.
